HC Deb 09 February 1995 vol 254 cc360-1W
Dr. Godman

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what records, maps and other data are maintained showing (a) the radioactive inventory, (b) the nature and (c) the precise location of low-level radioactive wastes disposed of on authorised landfill sites; and to what extent this information is available to members of the public.

Sir Hector Monro

[holding answer 6 February 1995]: Details of low-level radioactive wastes disposed of by controlled burial in landfill sites are held by the operator of the landfill site, usually the local authority. Operators are not required to publish this information. However, a request for such information to the operator would be considered within the framework of the Environmental Information Regulations 1992.
